Description

The keyboard stopped working on the showtime window, after upgrading from Ubuntu 13.04 to 13.10. Mouse works fine, but without keyboard Showtime is not very usable! :-(

I even tried rebuilding Showtime from git master sources, to no avail. Here's what showtime prints in the terminal:

[email protected]:~/Downloads/showtime$ ./build.linux/showtime

I tried to switch to the open-source nouveau driver instead, but the problem remains.

It never worked for me from ubuntu 12.10 to 13.10

#3 Updated by Gustavo Carneiro over 7 years ago

It worked perfectly for me in 13.04.

It seems to be a window manager issue. It works well in gnome shell, but not in unity.
